When Dan Kahan went to respond to my last post, we found out that Yale does not like the website I use to create my blog (Weebly).
So, instead, he replied via email and I have pasted his reply below. In his reply, he references a few of his posts--but mainly this one, as well as a few research articles.
I agree, of course, that someone can "get" the logic of an argument w/o accepting the conclusion b/c he or she doesn't accept the premises. That could be an explanation of how a non-believer in evolution passes an evolution exam. Maybe that was Aidan in the Hermann study.
